xmas boxes and Lacy Sunshine

Managed to make a couple of gift boxes for christmas presents before I clear my craft stuff away ready for christmas, its no fun having to use the dining table to craft!

Ive decorated the boxes using some of the paper I got in a sale at the craft barn cant remember what its called sorry.
The holly comes from Oyster Crafts and the adorable images are from Lacy sunshine

Hoping the kids like the boxes as much as whats inside.

Snowflakes at Fab n Funky

Sorry i'm late with my post today - have had a wicked cold and really struggled to get anything done.
But I finally managed to make a choccie bag this evening, only another six to go!

Our challenge this week has been set by Rachel and if your anything like us you to will be struggling to get your christmas cards finished - hopefully the theme


will help you on your way.

For my choccie bag I have used Tim Holtz snowflakes dies both large and small and added silver treasure.
My image is Frosty Friends which is available from our sponsor Stampart Design by Katheryne, which I coloured with copics and lots of glitter pen. Sorry photo doesnt do it justice it seems to have lost its sparkle.

Pandora's Box

Just want to share with you Pandora's Box
that I made at the Craft Barn with Neil from Neelz Expressions
 lots of gluing, gesso and paint, photos really dont do it justice couldnt get the colour right so try to imagine a colour in between the two photos and it should be close.


Birthday celebrations continue at Fab n Funky

 Just a quick reminder there is still time to join in with the 
Birthday Challenge

I had another play with the 
Winter Song Birdies
Doodle Pantry
available Here
The birds are a set of three carollers so used an art programme to merge and flip them to make a choir.

I think it turned out pretty good

This time I went for a whole bird choir - coloured with copics and lots of glitter. Coloured paper and ribbon with vintage photo distress inks.

Hope you like

I used this oh so lovely 

Papers are from Designer Extreme CD's by Donna at Bearly Mine Designs with pearl drops added to snowflakes for a bit of bling.
The Pearl drops were on my craft table so fit the shopping our stash challenge this week.

I really loved colouring this one but totally lost my mojo when it came to making the card, would you believe it took me just over three hours to put this card together and I had already coloured Emily.
When its not working it's just not working.

Then had problems getting a picture - my decent camera's battery was flat, the memory card for my little camera lost the thingy at the side so was write protected, tried taking some photos on phone but oh not good, managed to find an old memory card eventually and get a couple of photos but found that the light has really bounced of the card so not really doing her justice.

Lacy Sunshine

Hi this is my entry for the Lacy Sunshine

 I had a bit of a nightmare with this card all started good colouring went well even the red didnt bleed too much, chose the papers and design and then things went down hill from there.

 Had major problems with the dies not cutting out smoothly then tried to mat the image and put it on crooked, that had to come of so back to the die cutting.

 Used glue gun to stick flowers on and managed to put them on in wrong place and couldnt get them off again.

Then real disaster thought would be a good idea to add a bit of sparkle to the wreath

BAD BAD move, managed to drop a blob of red on the wreath which was soo much bigger than it should have been and no time to redo so have had to do a bit of a cover up job, god bless stickles!

OH said he couldnt see it but I know its there!!!!!!!! so please dont look too hard.

I always have a bit of a problem with Halloween as I make cards and never send them as its not something we really do in England much

but can be for other occasions!

Im thinking of saving for my mum or my sister as we are constantly referred to as the witch of the west and the witches apprentice's by my mean old husband and kids!!!!!

I coloured image with copics and 
used corner dies with lots of added 
swarovski crystals,

Hope you like

Spots and Stripes

Im just a tad late with this weeks post for the 

(my excuse is at the end of the post)

which is bought to you this week by

who chose the theme of 


There are TWO sponsors this week


I chose Golfing Pa Paw

Coloured him with copics, papers are Nitwit, Country Gent sketch is Mojo Monday.


Having one or two problems crafting at the moment - I will admit that my craft table is always a mess and I end up working on a minute space, but even I cant craft too well at the moment!  

Having just returned home from a week away at Peckforton Castle for our Pearl Wedding, I went to work and when I come home this is what greeted me

A big hole in the floor and my craft cupboard
which by the way is huge in pieces
and my stuff all around the living room and hall in every available space

We have had a major leak and of course it had to be in my craft area - so now we have to dry the beams out so having to live like this for a while

but being a true crafter I managed to squeeze a bit of space on the end of the table (well I dumped more stuff on the floor) and put together some DT cards that luckily I had already coloured the images for, cos I cant get to my copics sob!

Have a great week Beccy x

This cake was made for my DIL's mums birthday and DIL asked me to do her characters for it.

I found these Wizard of Oz characters at The Paper Shelter. Arent they adorable.

I coloured them with copics and then triple embossed each figure after fussy cutting round them and then glued them onto lollypop sticks.

You can use a rock'n'roll song as inspiration

I did something a bit different this week and instead of a card
I have made this Canvas Clock.

I covered the canvas with Paperartsy paints and then added some glimmer mists. I painted the chipboard letters and clock with the paints too and added Mica powder to some of the letters.

The figures I coloured with copics.

 Im not always pleased with my colouring but this time im really pleased with how they turned out.

Hope this inspires you to maybe try something a bit different
